Patrick Aubriot for Rue de Seine at Century Furniture

One of the greatest pleasures of Highpoint Market is not only seeing what's new, but also meeting the designers.  While touring Century, French interior architect/designer Patrick Aubriot and his wife Nathalie took us through their new collection which harks back to one of my favorite periods, mid-20th century French design.
Patrick and his wife are no stranger to American furniture companies.  A few years ago they collaborated with Baker furniture on the fantastic Andre Arbus collection.
The lines and style of these pieces are admittedly similar to the Baker collection in that they have simple forms which rely on the strength of the line and the balance of proportions.
I loved this desk chair from the collection.
And who wouldn't want this beautiful bar cabinet in their living room or den? I love the mirrored interior.
These elegant upholstered chairs would look fantastic in my new living room! Note the sheen on the selected fabric.
The details on these pieces are really what make them special - check out the inlays on the Rue du Bac martini table.
The clean modern lines of the end table below could fit in with any number of styles from arts and crafts to contemporary.
 This upholstered bed had some incredible detailing while still remaining simple.
 Notice the upholstery built into the wood frame.
The inlays on this wood bedframe were incredible too. What do you think of the collection? I obviously loved it!
Look for this collection soon!

I think there are definitely some great pieces. I love the clean lines but that there is also detailing and embellishment, however spare.
